The Longmont White Ribbon Campaign has kicked off! The Men's Program from MESA helped Longmont kick off their white ribbon campaign by preparing the 24 white ribbons that now hang on Main Street. It was an adventure of it's own painting 24 ribbons during torrential downpours! With the help of volunteer Jeff Israel, we were able to get them done in time to hang! MESA volunteers Kevin Kelly and Francisco Flores, stopped by to check out the white ribbons after presenting to a group of 30+ about Men’s Roles in Gender Violence Prevention: Film Viewing and Discussion.

What is Men Standing Up?

Moving to End Sexual Assault's Men's Prevention Education program in Boulder, Colorado is dedicated to raising awareness about rape prevention. Studies show that that men and boys hear a message about ending sexual violence better from other males, making men’s involvement crucial in creating lasting social change.
